WHAT is the date today?!?!

The 24th, you say?  No way!  I saw a meme on Facebook today that states it's 11 months until Christmas Eve...I best get crackin' on those Christmas cards!  To that end, here is one now...
I colored up this CUTIE from Bugaboo, Eggbert Winter to be precise, with Spectrum Noir, Copic, and Prismacolor markers.  I thought at the time that my colors matched the papers I had chosen, but in hindsight, maybe not so much.  AND my camera isn't very good at taking nice photos anymore, but trust me, this looks better IRL!  Hiding on the snow in the image is some clear Spectrum Noir sparkle pen.
Christmas Card challenges #4:  ATG or optional photo inspiration
12 Months of Christmas Link Up #25:  ATG or optional "Out with the old, in with the New" theme (the square gems are old, the sparkle pen and Lawn Fawn sentiment are new)
ABC Christmas:  "A" for ATG, and/or "B" for something beginning with "B"

  26. Very fun card! We are so blessed for your participation in our last Challenge and would love for you to join us again in our current Challenge at Word Art Wednesday. Leaving you with this Scripture inspiration from Colossians 2:6-7 which tells us, "So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live your lives in him, rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness." Have a blessed week.
